Against the DBID
In the light of mounting opposition to the Yorkshire Coast DBID, the Yorkshire Coast Levy Payers’ Association (YCLPA) has announced further meetings to provide information to businesses throughout the region:
Whitby – Monday 7th October – 6.30 for 7.00
Friendship Rowing Club
Bar will be open. Our thanks to the Rowing Club, as always. Park at the Harbour and walk along Church Street towards the Abbey. The Rowing Club is on the left-hand side, where the road narrows.
Scarborough – Wednesday 9th October – 6.30 for 7.00
Park at The Spa. Tea and Coffee Available – Our thanks to Jackie for this venue.
The next Bridlington meeting
. . . . is to be confirmed – almost certainly to be held at the Revelstoke Hotel – our thanks to Adrian Vodden for this venue.
The subject matter of these meetings, apart from supporting one another as businesses who share the same values, will be to launch OUR ‘business led initiative’ (more details to follow).
At all our meetings in the past we have given ‘floor space’ to those who have differing ‘views’ from our own. We think we’ve heard enough from them now, so:-
As a result of wanting to keep our focus, we are only inviting those who support our cause. The invitation has not been extended to BID directors or employees. A handful of genuinely supportive Councillors are on our mailing list and we welcome their attendance.
Attached is a reminder of the ‘timeline’ for BID levy payments. If you are refusing to pay – take heart that NO-ONE should receive a court summons this side of the New Year. If anyone has anything that appears outside of these timelines please let us know IMMEDIATELY.
Contact me, Hero Sumner, with any queries and to be added to our mailing list.
